DraftKings NBA picks November 20: My name is Luka

We have our largest DraftKings NBA slate of the season with 11 games tonight. You know what that means. Tons and tons of options. We can afford to be selective on a slate this size. Don’t settle for 5x value. Aim higher!

As you may expect with this many games, the injury report is massive. It also helps us to identify some value plays out there.

Out: Kyrie Irving (shoulder), D’Angelo Russell (thumb), Kyle Lowry (thumb), Justise Winslow (concussion), Tristan Thompson (rest), Caris LeVert (thumb), Otto Porter (foot), Elfrid Payton (hamstring), Jake Layman (foot), Derrick White (foot), Kevin Huerter (shoulder), Dion Waiters (suspension), Damion Lee (hand), Reggie Jackson (back), Eric Gordon (knee), Tony Snell (hip), Michael Carter-Williams (hip), Khris Middleton (quad), Derrick Jones (hip), Stanley Johnson (groin), Patrick McCaw (knee), Ed Davis (leg), Gordon Hayward (hand), KZ Okpala (Achilles), John Henson (hamstring), Dylan Windler (leg), Wilson Chandler (suspension), Kevin Durant (Achilles), John Wall (Achilles), Nene (hip), Gerald Green (foot), Reggie Bullock (back), John Collins (suspension), Steph Curry (hand), Klay Thompson (knee), Kevon Looney (hamstring), Jacob Evans (hip), Alen Smailagic (ankle), Luke Kornet (nose), Cristiano Felicio (wrist), Khyri Thomas (foot)

Questionable: Kawhi Leonard (knee), Andrew Wiggins (personal), Jabari Parker (shoulder), Jonathan Isaac (ankle), Serke Ibaka (ankle), Josh Okogie (knee), Larry Nance (thumb), Seth Curry (illness), Shabazz Napier (hamstring), Landry Shamet (ankle), Evan Turner (Achilles), Jordan McRae (illness), Ian Mahinmi (Achilles),

Wiggins is back with the team but is feeling a little under the weather. There is a good chance that he makes his return since it isn’t for the death of his grandmother anymore.

JJJ took my ire from Turner. I had a couple of really good lineups that he destroyed. I did cash in the night slate with a Lakers stack to recoup some of what JJJ took away.

Ambitioist took this slate down with 342.5 DraftKings points. He hit big with Bogdan, Brow, and Booker and got massive value out of Draymond, Alec Burks, Anfernee Simons, Melli, and Clarke (because JJJ is a walking foul).

I am going to go back to the old format here. I just think it looks better, and you likely will too. Don’t worry, I’m still keeping the new last page. We can combine old and new things.
